84-3-503. Notice of dishonor. (a) The obligation of an endorser stated in K.S.A. 84-3-416( a)[84-3-415(a)] and the obligation of a drawer stated in K.S.A. 84-3-415( d)[84-3-414(d)] may not be enforced unless (1) the endorser or drawer is given notice of dishonor of the instrument complying with this section or (2) notice of dishonor is excused under K.S.A. 84-3-504(b).

(b) Notice of dishonor may be given by any person; may be given by any commercially reasonable means, including an oral, written or electronic communication; and is sufficient if it reasonably identifies the instrument and indicates that the instrument has been dishonored or has not been paid or accepted.

With respect to any other instrument, notice of dishonor must be given within 30 days following the day on which dishonor occurs.
